Map & Directions
Rooms & Rates
Stanwell House Hotel is an 18th-century former finishing school on Lymington's high street, half a mile from the New Forest National Park. The town has a wealth of history -- it was once a honeypot for smugglers looking to hoard contraband in nearby caves, and its Saturday market has been running for over 765 years. Today, there's a multitude of white masts in the marina, and the "utterly quaint" (Lonely Planet) cobbled lanes are lined with independent shops.
The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, which has a collection of more than 250 classic cars and motorcycles, is a 15-minute drive away; Buckler's Hard Maritime Museum is 10 minutes' drive from there. Southampton and Lyndhurst are less than 30 minutes' drive of the hotel.
The 2-AA-Rosette Etain restaurant serves local produce delivered daily. You can dine al fresco on the terrace in good weather or in the "intimate" (The AA) Burcher & Co restaurant. The Drydock bar offers 25 different gins and a selection of wines, and there's also a cocktail and malt whisky menu.
Georgian rooms are on the second and third floors, in the oldest part of the property, while Garden rooms are more contemporary and are on the ground and first floors. Dogs can stay in some ground-floor Garden rooms for an extra £15 per dog, per night.
